The forum rule about “threads of a political or religious nature are not appropriate for the marketplaces.”

Because of that restriction, we have take a rather wide stance unfortunately. Sorry.

Ok the rules are the rules and I hope I will see the same, locked thread, when it’s christmas time or other religious celebration.

Please do go and ask Collis himself, you might be suprised about his answer.

edit: I remember very well when he told in forum that these kind of threads are okay. But, nevermind, we respect envato staff decisions. :)

Look guys, I have nothing against the expression of religious feelings. But the forum rules are pretty clear for the very fact that things can get heated when you talk belief or politics. I’m going to unlock the thread until I hear otherwise because I don’t think it was with any malicious intent. I will being getting clarification on how we should approach similar threads in the future. Thanks!

I have no problem doing that if that’s the direction I get. I take no joy in locking threads, but I hope you understand the reasons why we have that forum rule.
